Orange France deploys Jabber, Inc.'s mobile presence and Instant Messaging platform
Posted on 5-Jul-2005 23:50 | Tags Filed under: News



Orange France is starting the rollout of mobile presence and instant messaging (IM) services developed using the Jabber Extensible Communications Platform (Jabber XCP).

"Seamless interoperability is an expectation of mobile users in our market," said Julien Billot, head of marketing with Orange France. "Jabber XCP delivers both the interoperability our consumers demand and the rich features we require to continually differentiate our products for maximum consumer appeal."

In addition to being able to send and receive presence and IM within the Orange France network, subscribers of the new services will be able to connect with users of other mobile services, as well as to the presence and messaging capabilities of desktop customers. The choice to develop the services using Jabber XCP was both a function of the services that can be delivered through Jabber XCP, as well as the set of protocols supported by this platform, including XMPP, IMPS, and SIP.

The services offered to mobile subscribers by Orange France will use either Jabber, Inc.'s embedded mobile client solution or an IMPS-based client. The embedded mobile client was developed in partnership with Movial of Finland. The company is present in this market with a solution that works with Symbian, J2ME, Linux and Windows Mobile devices.

The mobile clients and services allow Orange subscribers to publish and subscribe to presence, add IM contacts by phone numbers, import contacts from their address book, use emoticons, white and black list contacts, be provisioned through auto-upgrades, and work within a sophisticated user interface.
